We all work remote except for the few days we try and meet in the office. It's becoming more and more noticeable that he's more concerned about deadlines and timelines than actually putting out functional designs and servers. He would rather put in a half working server cluster that meets a timeline he sets than actually making sure it's done right and working properly. And then when it comes back that the stuff isn't working properly, he puts it on us as if we didn't do our job.This has caused numerous people in our department to quit within the last few months leaving the only real working staff in it as me. I'd like to stay working here because the pay is decent and the advancement opportunities are good, but the 24x7 work days are killing me. I rarely spend time with my kids anymore. I have tried both the vocal approach and the subtle approach with him to no avail. Sometimes he actually just flat out doesn't respond to questions or ideas. What do I do? Mark it up as life as an admin and find a new position? Or try and convince the company and him that there's a better way to work?
